Tommy Ryman on Last Comic Standing
Tommy Ryman is the Matt Damon of comedy, if Matt Damon was 124 lbs and wore an eye-patch as a child. Tommy Ryman grew up with a new-age, folksinging mother and a traditional, Lutheran insurance-agent father. This XY equation evidently equals: acclaimed comedian. Ryman has earned the title of Semifinalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. His act can be described as absurdist and clever, masked behind a very likable and innocent demeanor, often thought of as disturbingly adorable. He is a favorite among audiences at top clubs and colleges around the nation, leaving a wake of hilarity in his path.
An important part of our mission is to change the way society thinks about and approaches mental health. We believe that a key to this change begins with our youth. It is one of the reasons why we have established a college scholarship fund for high school seniors.
Taylor Brugh was in the eighth grade when he died from suicide on May 14, 2013. The Taylor Brugh Memorial Scholarship was founded so his spirit would carry on for generations to come and will be awarded annually. The scholarship recipiant will be announced at the fundraiser and will briefly speak about what the scholarship means to them. The scholarship committee chair Kristine Brugh, who is also Taylor's mother, will present the scholarship to the winner. Kristine is a valued partner in making The Beautiful Mind Project what it is today.
